Is there any interest in making a concerted effort to get the F16 fleets together at a fall regatta? We have the Gulfport Invitational in the Spring, but it would be nice if we had something in the Fall, as well.
Juana's Good Time Regatta (Navarre Beach, FL on Sept 8/9, 2007) may be a good location/format. Distance race on Saturday (32ish miles) and triangles on Sunday. Not a serious race weekend, but plenty of time for socializing and building friendships. More info on the host and sailing venue can be found at www.juanaspagodas.com.
Lots of families, my kids spent hours on the volleyball court last year.
Does it conflict with any large Central FL regattas? If so, lets throw out some other options....
